~LOVING the Beasts of Nurgle. Also look at the Nurgling with the Bilepiper – that is the happiest little guy in the Warp!

  • Seienchin

    I am not sure what to thinks about the new Nurgle stuff. The new GUO is like the best chaos model ever while stuff like the bilepiper and rotbringers look horrible…

    • Geko747

      They look amazing, the only one that is a let down is that beast of Nurgle. Looks unfinished and terrible.

      • Nyyppä

        Too happy and cartoony….

        • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

          Not grinning and insane enough, not vicious or evil. Just dumb.

          • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

            they are meant to be dumb, in the fluff they are friendly like puppies, but accidentally kill people because they are so poisonous.

            It doesn’t look like it could move at the speed necessary to live up to its fluff though.

          • Nyyppä

            True. It’s also true that these are some of the best plastic minis in terms of quality.

    • GridlineRacer

      I think the look of the Bilepiper is very much down to personal taste but you can’t deny the incredible level of detail, imagination and craftsmanship that is going into these models. They are just amazing.

      • Nyyppä

        Quality miniatures, no doubt about that. Horrible for what they are supposed to represent. I don’t think that just paint will fix that. I mean, the current Nurgle herald is great. These are not.

    • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

      I’m done with Disney buying every franchise, man …

      • AEZ

        It’s Nurgle.. Nurgle is cartoony.. it’s not like other armies got the same treatment.. Khorne doesn’t really look cartoony? Is 40K suddenly a japanse anime game because we got the (hideous imho) Tau in there? There are armies for all tastes (except for those who like women :D)

        • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

          Nurgle is desease, Nurgle is sickness, Nurgle is rotting flesh, Nurgle is dead bodies in advanced state of decay, and they spread it with joy, but the kind of disgusting joy you can see in the eye of a serial killer. We’re not in the colorful and vivd world of WoW

          • James Regan

            Nurgle is the happiness of a parent seeing the birth of their child- he is mother nature, after all. That’s where he got his personality, from Freya, From Hera and Artemis in Greek myth, from the many gods of trees and plants and all that grows. His greatest curse, nurgles rot, actually grants a soul eternal life, even without ascension. But therein lies the problem, as Nurgle doesn’t discriminate on the grounds of higher thought, and so his offspring are bacteria, most numerous and vibrant of all life- no thinking species lives as fast or multiplies so quickly as anthrax, after all. He’s all the aspects of a life god, all of that happiness, but with the higher thought stripped away, down to its barest, most nihilistic roots. What else would you expect from the grand god of despair than an overwhelming acceptance that yes, each and every spore of nurgles rot still counts as a living subject, a child even, no matter the consequences.
            To a certain extent, Nurgle is a better god of love than Slaanesh, because while he has no lust or passion, he has the hopeless, eternal, unchanging attatchment of unconditional love for each and every one of his children, no matter how others view them with disgust. The Dark Prince’s love, however, is totally conditional, based only on need, only on what it gets in return

          • frank

            Think its just how the design team paints it all up that is the issue. Though the beast is kinda dumb looking to me but, so was the last one, and the ones before that were not great either.

    • dark-tadpole

      I can see why these models are very divisive (is that even a word?). They are more cartoony than previous incarnations and the paint jobs do emphasize this. I personally really like them and always find that they also look a lot better in person than they do from photos.
      I will be painting them much darker, dirtier and grittier than they are shown here. I think doing that will create a nice contrast of how happy and jolly the model looks to how grimy and gruesome its actually painted.
      My one concern is with the beasts, even though they have quite a few options in the pack they will all look very similar when grouped together. Not a major thing to me and something I will get over but having the option to reposition the arms would of been nice.

      • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

        Don’t skimp on washes and droolings

        • dark-tadpole

          Never 🙂

      • There was a photo in WD with 3 beasts together and they looked REALLY dumb all standing with the same pose. Very disappointing model. Thankfully there’s enough to love in the rest of the release, I’ll get one beast and call it done

    • Callum Rae

      Most of the new stuff looks like a child has been taught how to use CAD then had the concept of Nurgle explained to them by matt ward.

      • Reread the Slaves to Darkness passage on nurgle, they fit to a T

        • Callum Rae

          Aye the new fluff was created by the same child 😀

          • frank

            I dunno the Carnival of Nurgle theme is pretty cool. like his followers are in on the joke, disease isn’t a burden to Nurgles’ children. It is all part of a long ultimately unwinnable game and unlike the rest of the chaos gods Nurgles’ daemons like to have fun while they work. not like those sad-sacks the Death Guard haha.

          • He’s a pretty old child at this point lol, slaves to Darkness was released in like 87

      • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

        My eyes…

        • frank

          Gouge them out, because you will never see something more beautiful!

        • I’m just saying it’s hard to get mad that they’re sticking to the depiction they’ve consistently had for 30 years, like Slaves to Darkness in 87; carnival of chaos in Mordheim in ‘99, the goofy Nurglings in ‘08, this is what nurgle has always been

  • COsteve

    I always read that as Slopitty Boppity.

    • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

      “Woopity doopity doo”

    • orionburn III

      And I keep thinking an old Bond movie chick is now a 40k character (Pusgoyle I keep reading as Pus-y Galore.

  • Tshiva keln

    Why do they have to have such stupid names though?

    • Nostok

      Tshiva keln?

      • Nostok

        Just kidding… it is I believe something historic that nurgle is more playful than the other gods. I think it is just a reference to this.

      • Tshiva keln

        Ha, well said! Made me smile 😀

        I get the Nurgle is fun thing, guess I just don’t like sloppity as never been too fussed by the others in the past.

        Tshiva keln is Nostroman by the way, (Nightlords home planet language). It’s still a silly thing to use as a name though as it basically means “eat sh#t”

        • Nostok

          🙂

    • BaronSnakPak

      To be fair, “Papa Nurgle” isn’t exactly the pinnacle of horrifying names.

  • Pl4gu3 B4st4rd

    That “Rasta-slug” design is absolute fail. Imagine 7 of them in a unit, all the same. Nope.

    • Jonas Barkå

      The kit seems to be quite modular, but any basically mono-pose mini will look bad in a big unit.

    • The tentacle head is basically perfect but I agree completely the monopose body is disappointing as heck

  • orionburn III

    I like the flying Blightlord models, but hopefully there’s an option where you don’t have to build it with the one dead guy hanging out front. That’s one of those models that does not look good when it’s repetitive on the table.

    • dark-tadpole

      I think that’s the Lord option that you can build, so generally would only have one of them. I could be mistaken though.

      • Jonas Barkå

        You are right. It is for the lord and also seems to be an optional equipment. (Source: January WD)

  • Gotta check out the battletome to weigh whether these new models are going to be making it in my army or not before I spring that much for them.

    • Facehammer has a good review of the battletome up btw

  • Spacefrisian

    Are those stickers on the rotbringers belly?

  • I really wanted 6 beasts, but $240 is just too much, so I’ll buy one and make 6 with random stuff I had lying around. I’m definitely gonna get a bunch of the heralds, though, I want one of each for my Daemons, then a bilepiper to make into a pestigor, and another scrivener to use as the coach for my nurgle blood bowl team. http://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/453772e9597b8828e172d3e0f5e0ce9f361d6d3935522ff74a3c0fa49eaacaa5.jpg
